The latest TT-Miner Version 2.1.15 comes with improved support and performance for ZCoin (MTP algorithm) mining on NiceHash and that makes it attractive for use on NiceHash at the moment where MTP is among the most profitable algorithms. The expected performance is up to about 3.5 MH/s for GTX 1080 Ti and stability wise things seem good, though direct mining of ZCoin might also be worth it long term. It is interesting to note that other popular miners with MTP support are still lacking support for NiceHash mining, so the latest TT-Miner might still be the best option you have, not to mention that performance wise it could also be currently the fastest miner for MTP thanks to the latest optimizations.

TT-Miner supports ProgPOW, Ethash, UBQhash, MTP and Myriad-Groestl algorithms on Nvidia GPUs and is available for Windows only, a closed source miner with 1% developer fee for all of the supported algorithms.

VulkanXMRMiner is a new GPU miner that is based on Vulkan and SPIR-V technology and not OpenCL, like most other AMD miners out there, so it should work on any Vulkan 1.0 compatible device: AMD, Intel or Nvidia. VulkanXMRMiner is available for both Linux and Windows and it requires Vulkan support installed with a recent video drivers in order to function. The miner supports Monero (XMR) with its newest variant CNv4 (CryptoNightR) as well as Wownero (CryptoNightV8), Aeon (CryptoNight Light) and TurtleCoin (CryptoNight Turtle) as well as other crypto coins that are based on any of these algorithms. The miner is open source, however the already compiled binaries do come with a 1% development fee for the further development of the software. Feel free to share your settings and performance results should you try this Vulkan-based Cryptonight miner on your mining rigs…

With Monero (XMR) forking in a day to te new CNv4 (CryptoNight R) algorithm there are more GPU miners getting ready and supporting the new algorithm and the latest XMR-Stak is no exception. It might not be the first to support CryptoNight R as SRBMiner has been available for a while for AMD with CNv4 support. XMR-Stak 2.10.0 however does offer support not only for AMD GPUs, but also for Nvidia and even CPU miners, so it is your universal CryptoNight R miner. Performance wise in our initial tests XMR-Stak is just slightly faster in terms of hashrate compared to the latest SRBMiner 1.8.0, but the advantage is neglectable and the difference with the default developer fee eats away the additional hashrate you get.

Of course it also supports number of other CryptoNight variants including the new cryptonight_v8_reversewaltz used by Graft with their recent fork and pretty much any other more popular CN variant out there as well. Do note however that the official binary release comes with a 2% development fee, you can compile the miner yourself from source (it is open source) with different or even no developer fee however should you decide to.
